What a splendid recording. Jerry is singing in fine form here…Swell Foolish; always been a sucker for this song. Nice recording. And love this Broken Arrow. Some have spoken badly against Robbie – I love him all the same. (Just like I love Paul Simon, no matter what is said about him either… )

I have taken to reading reviews recently (to find more shows 'cause I need more shows and frankly the forum can be so distinctly uninteresting lately- how about we start name calling each other while we try and steal each others milk money?). And so I gave a listen b/c saintofcircumstance420 review caught my attention. The stephens source I think is the best, an unusual occurrence when CM's isn't even close. I'll still take Charlie's batting average though.

What a fun show! SLC (SLC Punk- great movie) breakout. Even Jed has a bit of energy. Is it me or do Broken Arrow and Childhoods End sound similar? (http://archive.org/details/gd94-07-20.sbd.darkstar.12596.sbeok.shnf) I think So Many Roads was Jerry's best late era tune, and this is a decent version. Strong MNS. I was shocked at how good (even as it carries its flaws, as this song always does) Foolish was as well. I'm a sucker for the tune too. (Any Foolish recs?) The 'I Just Wanna' (first since '84)> TWBS is interesting and again, fun. No real jams this show, but if you finish up with a Johanna like this I'm in (though 3-18-95 is better). This may be the last good SMags. I'll even take the Liberty. I still don't know why some folks don't like it, it's a good first set-ish tune. Who wouldn't lie for love? This one is a strong version> Good keys and Jerry has no lyric adventures. How often can you say that about this era?

An overall reaction to an end of the line show is that it's just weird to hear Bobby be so much more in the mix (in many ways). Jerry, when on, is fragile- but beautiful.

SLC Punk could be biography>.
